journal

almost the middle of June

I'm learning to play the guitar. We are leaving for Vermont tomorrow. I've wrapped up two online writing classes. We are sending him to Montana in July. I have figured out how to juggle four balls, but I can't quite keep them in the air. We are successfully growing two tomato plants in the backyard, and the planters of basil and mint are brimming. I feel like I haven't written in ages, even though I know I have. We are making new friends who don't live in this town. I have started visiting estate sales once a week, and I've discovered that I love getting lost in other people's clutter. We have hired a business manager, and our calendar is filling up. I am trying to drink my coffee more slowly in the mornings, as if this will stretch the day out a little longer.
